Details

* dark Antoniucci *==luci1.20171001.0001-0005, luci2.20171001.0001-0005== DIT 240, NDIT 1, mer, normal
  • strange patterns in the darks of LUCI1, please check!!!
  • luci1.0006-0010, luci2.0006-0010 DIT3, NDIT2, lir, integrated

01:53 begin Antoniucci program, telluric HIP92177 for V371 Ser
  • 01:55 error LUCI2 changing the mask
  • 02:27 problem resolved. the seeing is very good (0.6''-0.7''), we decided to slew to Moscadelli program ( high priority)

02:30 Moscadelli target G100.3873.58
  • luci1.20171001.0011-0022, luci2.20171001.0011-0022 H2
  • seeing is about 1.0''
  • luci1.20171001.0023-0028, luci2.20171001.0023-0028 Ks

03:20 standard F151
  • luci1.20171001.0029-0038, luci2.20171001.0029-0038

03:46 slew to AO

04:29 begin Massi program, target G092 in binocular mode
  • lost preset
  • problem with LUCI2 (contamination in the AO system ), just LUC1 is available

05:03 run again the preset for the target with just LUCI1
  • run AO
  • luci1.20171001.0044-0073
  • on the image fwhm about 0.2''
  • seeing on the guider about 0.5'', on the image fwhm about 0.16''
  • 06:26 image fwhm about 0.18'' - 0.19'', on the dimm about 0.7''

06:38 standard star F151 (with camera N30 but without AO)
  • luci1.20171001.0074-0078

06:52 slew to the target G111
  • luci1.20171001.0079-0100
  • fwhm on the image about 0.2''

07:49 slew to Antoniucci program, target Haro 6-10 (cannot point to Piconcelli due to wind from south)
  • luci1.20171001.0101-0106
  • 08:10 stop after 5th exposure because we need to unwrap the telescope ..(azmiuth limit)
  • 08:16 start again
  • luci1.20171001.0107-0170
  • fwhm 0.23''
  • 08:31 fwhm 0.25''
  • 08:43 the seeing on the the dimm has a jump, consequently also the fwhm(AO) on the image
  • 08:46 seeing again about 0.6''-0.7''
  • 08:55 the AO loop opens, image luci1.0129 is not good (fortunately is a sky image )
  • 08:57 loop closed
  • 09:00 fwhm 0.24''
  • 09:28 loop opened, luci1.0149 is not good (sky image)
  • the loop can not be closed maybe because the pointing for the sky image is too far from the AOref star. we do an offset to come back to the target.
  • 09:50 the loop is closed
  • 10.01 fwhm about 0.2''
  • 10:10 loop open
  • we send a preset again
  • 10:28 run again the script
  • fwhm 0.2''

10:42 slew to the PSF standard GSC 01833-00704
  • luci1.20171001.0171-0176
  • fwhm about 0.1''

10:59 slew to Piconcelli program, telluric star HIP 24266
  • check pointing because now we use both LUCI
  • 11:12 go again the script
  • 11:18 LUCI doesn't talk with the TCS
  • 11:24 problem resolved, now the script run
  • 11:25 error in LUCI2, GEIRS error with LUCI2
  • 11:31 problem resolved, run again the script
  • luci1.20171001.0177-0179, luci2.0047-0049 acquisition
  • luci1.20171001.0180-0181, luci2.0050-0051 science

11:45 slew to the target A1 seeing 0.9" on guider
  • luci1.20171001.0182-0185, luci2.0052-0055 acquisition
  • luci1.20171001.0186-0188, luci2.0056-0058 science
  • seeing about 1.0''

12:20 end of the night in perfect time! smile

*well let's take twilight flats in Ks and H2
